  1. There still seems to be a bug in administrating/organising fonts and font families. While other applications display a font family properly and make all assigned typefaces of the family available in a proper drop down menu, publisher struggles in finding a family and belonging fontfaces. In the example you can see how InDesign (and many other applications) displays the Adobe "HelveticaNeueStd" Family with all typefaces in a proper menu ... an than have a look at the mess Affinity Publisher produces from the same family - this is very hard to work with ... nearly every (not all) typeface seems to be a seperate font family ... a nightmare ... Cheers, Timo
  2. Bonjour, Comment importer les polices de caractère d'un document INDD pour qu'elle s'affiche à l'ouverture dans Affinity? Merci
  3. When I open an Affinity Publisher document (originally created on a PC) on my mac, I get a pop-up dialogue box informing me that a font is missing. Using the Font Manager I can see the font that's missing (in a list). However, when I press 'locate' Publisher does nothing. In the list it suggests an alternative to substitute but, unless I'm missing something obvious, there's no way actually to substitute it. After saving and reloading, the same pop-up box appears telling me about the missing font. All thoughts/suggestions gratefully received. Edward
  4. HI All, I recently purchased all three programs and moved to Windows 10 OS. I have a new PC so I'm starting from scratch - installing fonts onto my system. I'm still using Adobe CS6 products while I transition to Affinity, I have a lot of print files (Magazines, Ads, Flyers etc.) which use specific fonts that I have to continue using so in order to move I have to be able to access the font files in Affinity. I have hundreds of fonts Truetype, Open Type and Postscript Type 1. The installed fonts all showed up in my Adobe Suite but not in Affinity? I use FontExpert to manage installs but I have also tried installing directly to Win10 fonts folder. The results are quite random. I get a different (Limited) selection of installed fonts each time I open a program - and never the full range of typeface options (Light, medium, regular, bold etc) Is there a setting I am missing to activate the installed fonts? Any solutions welcome? Thanks in advance
  5. Exported a document with text written using Roboto font to PDF in AD. But, it's appearing like this: The issue seems to be with the Thin variant only. Tried AP and there were no issues!
  6. I changed the font of some text fields in the master (the whole field, not inside the field). My document has already 16 pages, all referring to this master, but the copy text was already inserted. Now I changed the font in the master, and thought that the font change will affect all layout pages (at least those where I did not explicitly change the font within the text field). But this did not work. If I re-apply the master, all my copy text in the 16 pages is set back to the text of the master! Am I missing something?
  7. When using arial font in Japanese environment, there is a bug in the font character. There are many bugs. The character conversion of the blank space is different or the character itself is different. Since arial is a system standard font, it cannot be deleted, but it is a font that has problems in the Japanese environment. However, since the default font is arial and the alternative font is automatically converted to arial, there is a big problem other than the appearance of the design. Is it possible to have MSfont as the default font in Japanese environment or to select standard font in afinty designer? It ’s very… I ’m in trouble because I ’m in trouble Even if it is hidden on the windows system, arial can be selected on afinty ...
  8. I have installed a truetype font in Windows 10. It appears in the Windows font settings, but it doesn't appear in the list of available fonts in Affinity Photo. I have tried logging out of Windows and logging back in again, but it still doesn't appear. How can I fix this?
  9. Hello. I used AD to draw and slice single glyphs for my new comic book font... regular is done, others (italic, bold, bold ilalic) are still in progress. ... and here is the sampler:
  10. A big problem for me is the fact, that I cannot place PDFs in APub with embedded fonts that are not installed on my computer. Well, I can place them but they don’t look like they should, because the missing fonts were replaced! In a magazine I have to place a minimum of 70 ads that I get as PDFs from multiple customers. I only have to place them onto my pages within the editorial content. And they have to be ‚as they are‘ when it comes to printing. It’s not possible to tell all the customers: "Please give me all the fonts you have used"! So please make it possible to use PDFs the common way: Put a PDF on a layout as it is, whether the fonts used in it are installed or not. Kindest regards Udo
  11. Hey! I am wondering whether it is possible to place a PDF document without having the fonts replaced automatically. My question is now: Is (or will there be) there an option to convert all text to curves when placing a PDF document in AP? Would save a lot of time. Now I have to convert such PDFs before in another (open source) vector program to preserve its appearance. Affinity Designer doesn't provide this option either. Best regards, Chris
  12. Greetings, I have run into a strange problem with regard to one of my fonts used in Publisher. For some reason which I can't explain, the smart quote characters (single and double) are being replaced upon export to PDF. The font in question is Zapf Humanist (all variants). To make sure it wasn't me screwing something up, I started a fresh Publisher document, added a text frame, and entered text, formatting for a half dozen fonts. Every font I tried looked as it should in the PDF export except Zapf Humanist. The odd thing is everything looks fine in the application (see image). I thought that maybe a font was corrupted, but to have the error happen across all font files seems strange and unlikely to me. Is this a bug or have I done something wrong? Any thoughts would be appreciated. With thanks, Lee Affinity Publisher 1.7.2Windows 10 HomeIntel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz16GB Memory2TB HDD / 128GB SSD
  13. Hi everyone! Will be support for variable fonts in the near future?
  14. Hi, When opening a file with missing fonts, and exporting it as SVG (and perhaps other formats), AD shouldn't export text using Arial font infos, but keep original font infos. The replacement font is only a way to visialize text until we've got the missing font installed, the document shouldn't be modified this way (this is important, since the replacement is usually a poor one).
  15. Hi there, I have to say I really appreciate your effort and I do like your apps. I still hassitate about switching from CS6, but there are people around who made the step and rely on your apps. I was asked for help by one of those people with a relatively simple document in Publisher. We sorted things out, but then I looked closely at an advert that came from exterlan studio as a usual PDF and I could not believe my eyes. The document had all fonts substituted! It did a relatively good job and the difference was not huge, but still - it was different. I tried to import the file in a different way, looked in the preferences for some kind of a switch, that would allow to leave the PDF as is and not parse it on import. NOTHING. So I tried the other two apps, hoping for a way of at least rasterizing the PDF in Photo. NOTHING. I have not found a way of including the external PDF in the publisher document so that it looks as intended. If that is correct (and it is not my mistake of not finding a way) then it is a BUG hidden behind the facade of a feature. The software is unusable for everyone who needs to include external PDFs in his documents, because there is no way of having all the fonts included in any external PDF. And there is no way of having all texts in the external PDFs outlined. It might work with 50 % of them, but the rest... Q1: Is there really no way of importing a PDF "AS IS" (without parsing is and thus substituting missing fonts and altering the look of the document)? Q2: Is there really no way of rasterizing a PDF "AS IS" (without parsing is and thus substituting missing fonts and altering the look of the document)? Suggestion: If the imported PDF had and option (at least in Photo and Publisher) to leave the PDF intact and parsing it only if the user needs it... that would solve the problem (it could be rasterized and imported as bitmap (only a suggestion). I understand, that designers who do not import PDFs from other designers do not encounter this problem, but for all the others (including me) it is rendering the apps unusable. If the above statements are true, PLEASE try to solve this very soon. Thanks. Marek
  16. Buenos días, con la última actualización de Designer cuando selecciono el texto en la barra de controladores no me aparece el peso correcto de la letra. No sé si es normal o hay alguna falla. Veo que me ocurre lo mismo con Photo. Gracias por la respuesta.
  17. When I create a table everything goes well until I type in it. I can barely see what I type and I can't seem to change it. I seem to be able to change the font type, size, bold or not but it doesn't seem to change how it's displayed. It's like there is a fog over the table. I've watched the tutorials which are great but they don't seem to address this issue. Please help, I don't know what I'm doing.
  18. Fonts do not render the same as in PagePlus X8. Bold and regular are practically indistinguishable and fonts look heavy and fuzzy. They look fine in PagePlus X8. Also, in X8 I can apply Bold to any font even if the bold version is not installed e.g. Nyala. This is not possible in Affinity Publisher. Also, raised caps does not seem to be an option in Publisher. Font Rendering Issue.afpub Font Rendering Issue.ppp

  20. Hi there! Is there a way to set a default-font on startup? It's always "Arial" (Win), and not the first in that list (in my case: "Adobe Garamond Pro"). So I guess, there could be a setting or tweak... I would like to switch to my standard Myriad Pro. Thank you! Micha
  21. Hi, I'm using Affinity Designer on both iPad and Mac. Most of my designs are created on the iPad, then I move them to desktop for final touches and printing. I've had a couple of instances now where a font prints differently to how it's shown on screen. Examples are in the image. "Don't squat on your spurs" is in a font called "Old Standard". The 'Regular' variation prints with the letter U in outline, whereas the 'vintage' variation does not. "Give me your braaaains" is in "Dreadful" font which is in two parts. The white is in 'regular' which is behaving OK. The red is in the 'Rot' variant which lays over the top of the white. The 'M' and 'N' appear to have slid sideways in this case. I tested printing from the iPad and in both cases, the files print fine. (Unfortunately I can't seem to print in high resolution from the iPad or I would just do that, but that is a separate issue). So I think this is a desktop-only problem. Does anyone have and fixes or pointers, please? Thank you.
  22. Affinity Publisher Bug: The attached FontTest.afpub has 8 different fonts -- both serif and sans serif. When exporting to PDF (Export Settings: PDF (for web), 72 dpi, preview...), and the PDF sent via iTunes to with the iDevice's Books application or Acrobat application, font failure happens. We tested an iPhone 7 and 7+ (OS 12.4) and an older iPad (OS 10.3.4). What happens is that the letters ff, fi and others starting with f will not print using several fonts: Verdana, Arial, Georgia, Times New Roman. All works correctly using Garamond, Calibri, Myriad Pro, Adobe Caslon Pro. (We didn't test additional fonts.) All looks correct when the PDF is viewed on a PC, but not on our iPhones or iPads.

  23. Hallo, for first - sorry for my simple english. I have this problém with printing document from pdf, which was create in Aff.Designer. If I create the document and print it directly from Designer its OK and text is nice. But if I create the PDF file from document (by export function of Designer) the text is little bit thicker, like with stroke. If I prin it, it doesn´t look well. I tryed some settings in export, maily text as curves, but nothing work good. Text in ODF file is always with some stroke or something similar -text is thicker then I print same document directly. Can you help me? Somebody knows why it is? Thanks for any advice M.P.C
  24. Hi, i have a fresh windows 10 installation and some fonts ar missing in all affinity applications (photo, designer, publisher). For example "Open Sans" not shown in the applications. The font is installed on windows and can be selected in other programs like word or gimp. I have deleted the windows font cache and restart the pc but nothing changes. On my laptop the font is shown in affinity. I have copied the font files from my laptop and installed it on the pc, same issue. I have restarted affinity after every system change but nothing happens. Can i delete the affinity font cache somewhere. I have installed the latest versions from affinity products. I cannot find any option in the preferences. Regards, Timo
  25. So I have a layout that has numerous text boxes, that was originally designed for 8.5x11". I want to scale the design down to 5.5x8.5". How do I scale the text boxes so that when I scale them down, the font is resized automatically? Currently this is what is happening: I grab a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, but the font within does not. The font stays the same size (12 point), and eventually the words in the textbox simply overflow the textbox, because they no longer fit within the smaller dimensions of the scaled textbox. What I am trying to achieve: I grabe a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, as does the font within. The font goes from 12 point to whatever is need to keep its layout within the textbox (let's say 9 points). The words in the textbox don't overflow, as they maintain their original layout within the textbox. Ideally I want to achieve this without converting to curves, as I want to retain the ability to edit the text.
